This Easter weekend we are proud to release our “Célébration de la Vie” Moscato Frizzante. In 2019 we did not make an en Famille Muscat, rather we made wine to celebrate the life and works of our friend Dale Nigel Goble. Dale was Heidi’s friend and creative collaborator for 20 years.

Dale was instrumental in the branding of Joie from day one. His ‘look and feel’ has permeated the spirit of the winery for two decades strong. This “Célébration de la Vie” label is an illustration of the original Joie logo sketch that Dale created in 2001.

Dale’s aesthetic has permeated everything Heidi has created and deeply informed the way which JoieFarm has publicly presented itself for two decades. We have a deep gratitude for his understanding of our creative endeavours, his undying enthusiasm for the JoieFarm brand, his positivity and creative genius.

Dale created award-winning multidisciplinary works in graphic design, illustration, painting, screen prints, and sculptures. His artwork appeared in private and corporate collections around the world, and was featured in numerous design magazines, newspapers, television, print and digital media. His clients included, among others, the Four Seasons Hotels and the United Nations.

This “frizzante” style Moscato modeled after DOCG Moscato D’Asti.In this tradition, our estate Moscato Giallo grapes were fermented to be slightly off-dry, the original fermentation spritz captured and then bottled under 2 atmospheres of pressure. Its gentle sparkle and aromatics are both undeniably charming and unique. 

This weekend, JoieFarm’s Moscato Frizzante, is a perfect wine to enjoy with a “less formal” Easter meal. Perfectly paired with salty and briny aperitivo snacks, outdoor picnics and sunshine. It is a perfect wine to celebrate springtime and the renewal that comes with this hopeful season.

Joie was built on the backs of restaurants. For those of you who are new to the brand or don’t know the story of the winery, Joie had humble restaurant origins started by a cook and a waiter. Literally...

On my table today is love, abundance and presence. One of the silver linings of our current situation is the opportunity to sit quietly and be present with our families and share a meal. A good meal - one that took hours together to prepare.

2019 Vintage Report

2019 was a very difficult vintage. Under typical conditions, we often receive the gift of at least 60 days of cool, slow ripening “hang-time” that makes our wines intensely flavoured while maintaining their bright acidity. Over the past 15 vintages I have branded the signature style of JoieFarm Winery on this natural privilege afforded by a cool climate, lake-moderated desert. In our 16th vintage, however, our normal ripening patterns were interrupted by almost continuous rain, punctuated by an abrupt freeze...
